Write it Down, Pass it Around

Sometimes it's seems like I've done all the little memes floating around there in blogland, but new ones keep popping up.

Mr. Fob tagged me to do the book one, but I've done it before.

Silly Marie recently did this post and I thought I'd go ahead and tag myself to do it:


1. Link to your tagger and post these rules.

2. Share 5 facts about yourself that:

a. explain how you got your first or middle name

My parents got my first name from a country singer who was Waylon Jenning's wife and released a number of hit albums in the 1970s. They did change the spelling a bit. My middle name is from my grandmother on my father's side. She died when he was only ten years old, so I look forward to someday meeting her because many people tell me I look and act a lot like her.

b. where you were born

I was born in San Diego, CA nearly 30 years ago. In my parents' living room.

c. your favorite fruit

I love a lot of fruits: lemons or cherries when cooked in things, raw apples or pears with cheese, pink grapefruit, clementines, raspberries, mangoes

d. something embarrassing about you

I think that if you read this blog long enough you will find out all kinds of embarrassing things about me.

e. answer the question "Your dream wedding would have to include..."

Our wedding day actually went pretty well. I think if I were to do it over again I would have included a lot more flowers, but they can pretty expensive when you're getting married in November. I would also not include our photography who was creepy and took bad pictures and turned out to be a child pornographer. I probably would also do it in a different temple so as to not include hordes of other people getting married. Really, though, it was mostly a great wedding because we had our family members there and we had a great party for our reception.

3. Supply at least one funny photo that goes with one of your facts.

Ooh boy. I actually have photos of my birth somewhere, but I don't think anyone wants me to post that on the internet. I'll post a photo of something embarrassing I blogged about last year; I have a bad habit of cutting my daughter's hair even though it turns out terrible every time.

Now, for the really fun part of the post, I present the "pay it forward" meme. I feel bad that I've procrastinated posting it for so long, but here goes. I first saw this on Dandelion Mama's blog, but unfortunately didn't win. But my friend mhuff won and posted on her blog, so I was lucky enough to win over there. She mailed me a beautiful necklace a while ago and I feel bad that I have taken so long to return the favor.

The way this particular thing works is that you have to leave a comment in order to be entered into the contest. I will pick three random commenters on Friday night and they will win a prize made by me. Since I'm not very crafty, I will make some sort of baked goods. If you live near me it might be something like cupcakes, if not it will be something more sturdy that will last in the mail. You must be willing to pass on the good will if you win, so remember that when you enter the contest. Why don't we make things interesting by describing our favorite and least favorite baked goods?

So were you born in your living room on accident or on purpose?

My most favorite baked good right now is pain au chocolat or however you spell it.

Least favorite- pillsbury cresent rolls stuffed with dill etc.

Jenny, yes, that is how you spell it, and yes, it's to die for...as my waste, er, waist can attest.

I like pain au chocolat or tarte au citron (lemon tart).

I loathe store-bought cookies.
I like baked goods. What a fun idea.

I will not pass up the chance to sample your cooking. No, never! I'd die first!

Oops. Didn't notice that you wanted us to describe our favorite baked good. I don't really have one, but I usually enjoy really good rolls--cinnamon, regular dinner rolls, croissant, whatever.

I think this is very cool. Although if I win, I have no idea what I will make or if anyone would even comment because I'm pretty sure no one reads my blog anymore since I am the world's most infrequent poster. But still, I like the idea of passing good things around the world so I am in.

My favorite baked goods are cheesecake and crème brûlée (hey, it totally goes in the oven). My least favorite, by a comfortable mile, are cinnamon rolls.

Wow, you're named after Waylon Jennings wife! That officially makes you the coolest person I know. I'm serious.
